Cost Benefit Analysis of Micro Data Center Deployments

Several IT trends including internet of things (IoT) and
content distribution networks (CDN) are driving the
need to reduce telecommunications latency and
bandwidth costs. Distributing “micro” data centers
closer to the points of utilization reduces the latency
and costs from the cloud or other remote data centers.
This distributed data center architecture also provides
physical infrastructure benefits that apply to any small
data center regardless of the latency requirement. This
paper explains how micro data centers take advantage
of existing infrastructure and demonstrates how this
architecture reduces capital expenses by 42% over a
traditional build.
